Following the release of a viral video which showed Nollywood actor, Ani Iyoho burning, the management of the well planned and executed publicity stunt directed by movie director, Stanlee Ohikhuare has addressed the reason behind the spin.
72 hours after the video was released, Stanlee explained that the video was meant to showcase the talent embedded in Nollywood and to change the perception of the world about the capability of the Nigerian movie industry.
He noted that the spin was created to raise awareness and increase industry patronage via media engagement; utilizing the ever evolving social media platform to gain reach and peculiar attention to an entire industry.
Recall that Ani Iyoho had taken to his social media page on Instagram to clear the air telling his friends and fans that he is well and had decided not to address the viral video earlier based on management decision.
Stanlee Ohikhuare further solicited Government intervention to ensure adequate funding and to curb ugly incidents as portrayed in the viral video.
